“Great hotel for the price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We stayed at the hotel in September 2011 and it was very pleasant. The pool side is very clean and the staff were very helpful. I went with my partner, we are both 23/24. A lot of reviews say that this is only for young people, which I would agree! It is a very young atmosphere, however there are some very strict rules that you have to abide by. No music or noise after 11pm (which is fair), however we had no complaints from our neighbors whilst we stayed there, and i could not here a peep from them either.

The hotel is close to all the main attraction, Siam Park is only 2 mins walk away, and you can see it from the front of the hotel. The water park is amazing and a must.... make sure you get there early so you can enjoy the whole day. I would advise getting a 2 day pass as the wave machine and beach area there is fantastic!

Restaurants are of plenty, one place in particular we enjoyed was the very posh and great service at Mama Rosa's. We were treated like kings and queens!

If i was to go again, i would consider staying in this hotel again, please be advised that the hotel does not have air con, however we paid extra for a sea view (which is only available at the top of the building), we didn't miss it, the breeze came into the apartment and kept it cool all day! For an extra £20 for the sea view, it was well worth it!

All the reviews i have seen are very mixed, but to be honest with you... it isn't the best one you could pick but for the price, it is pretty damn good! So to those who have complained, up your budget next time! :)

This complex is very basic and in need of a makeover but that said, it is excellent value for money, very clean, and has all the basics required
Lack of air conditioning is a mayor minus point as is the climb up the hill when returning, day or night
It is more suitable to the younger set as it can get a bit boisterous at times
Overall no to bad at all

A group of 6 of us stayed here from the last week of Aug - start of Sep. We booked studio apartments & were given the ground floor beside the pool. Now we didnt want the ground floor but were told there were only 4 studio apartments & they were all on the ground floor. To be honest it was still a good place to be we were right beside the pool & the hotel shop, but the down side was that at 7-8 every morning you could hear the bins been taken out & the cleaners going around the pool area. The rooms were fine & big we had a kitchen with a cooker a fridge and plates and cups. The bathroom was fine to a bath and a stand up shower in the bath. In the bedroom part we had 2 single beds and a big couch that pulled out into a bed. The apartments are a 10min walk to the pubs & clubs and theres a handy 24hour shop that sells drink fags etc right beside the hotel....... Now everything sound ok with this hotel but here comes the problims. When you book in they take a 30euro deposit off each person (thats ok) but then give you a list of rules you must follow if you want your money back such as NO NOISE AFTER 11PM!!!!!!! now i was told this hotel was for young people.... am..... no!! We got landed beside a middle aged couple who done nothing but complain. Now there are 4 studio apartments beside each other me & my friends took 3 of them & this moaning couple got put with us. Were all aged between 23-27 so obviously were there for a good time. The receptionist came down to us EVERY NIGHT telling us to turn down the music more than once a night. On our 3rd day there me & my boyfriend were in bed & heard the cleander come into the room at 10am so we asked her 2 leave and wed sort it out so she walked out & then walked back in with a man.... the mananger! Who stood at the end of our bed with "2 pages" of complaints telling us that we were not to make any noise after 11 but yet they can turn on the speekers outside out room for the pool at 10 in the morning blasting music that doesnt even reach as far as the pool. As for the "pool bar" its not even worth looking at its over priced the drinks arnt nice & there happy hour in buy 2 get 1 free?? and its closed from around 11pm. If your looking for a party kind of holiday I wouldnt advise this place theres much better around all for the same price. Tenerife is a lovely place to go ill 100% be back....... but not to these apartments!!

Best holiday for a long time. Very clean and well equipped. Great location near a sandy beach with plenty of good cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and bars close by. Good variety of shops in vicinity. Taxis to Los Cristianos very cheap at about 3 euros. Taxi to airport only 19 euros and fifteen minutes away. Reception and other staff at Caribe were very friendly and helpful, and all of them multi-lingual. Prices of food and drinks onsite - as served by Renielle, a very friendly, informative and intelligent Cuban, whose mother also works at the Caribe - or Reni as most people call him - were very affordable and the quality was very good as was the service. The pool was heated and scrupulously cleaned every morning. The pool attendant - Alejandros - who is Italian and who likes a Caffe Leche Leche which we bought for him most days - was very professional and attentive to his job and would not tolerate any overly boisterous or dangerous behaviour by younger guests but he was not aggressive in any way, merely assertive which was much appreciated by other guests. The maid service and regular supply of clean towels and bedding was better than we have experienced in much more expensive hotels and apartments. And the internet and free book exchange were much appreciated. Once again, the best holiday we have had in a long time and we will definitely be returning to the Caribe apartments. And finally, the value for money from Travel Republic for our flights and apartment were unbeatable. We will definitely be using them again before trying anyone else.

Every aspect of our holiday experience was well served by the Caribe Apartments. But the beach was best which, with its rolling waves and plentiful supply of lifeguards and free public toilets made it very safe, convenient, and good fun for all ages and abilities. And the promenade all the way to Los Cristianos and Adeje was navigable by prams, pushchairs and wheelchairs with not a single step or kerb along the way. Excellent.

We just do not understand the motivation for the "Bad" reviews here. If we had a problem, such as a leaky toilet cistern valve or a broken wineglass, we reported it to Reception - and it was fixed - Simples. As for the beds, they were sprung interior mattresses, and we slept like logs every night. So we really do not understand what all the moaning reviews here are about for the Caribe Apartments - we would have no hesitation in coming back. And by the way, we spoke with people who have been coming back for months at a time for years and years, and they were mostly from Norway, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Holland, Ireland and Germany - and those nations are not famous for accepting second best. So rest your worries, come to the Caribe Apartments and have a ball. By the way, we are in no way associated with the Caribe. We are widely-travelled retired professionals who always write holiday reviews - good and bad - after every holiday we take. And this has been one of our best reviews.

I stayed here with my boyfriend last May.. when we arrived we got our keys as your do from reception as you do.. the receptionist showed us to our room! It was clean an simple.. Until i opened the fridge and a cockroach came running out so I put a glass over it as my boyfriend was acting like it was going to kill him!!.. We left it there until the next day, the cleaners came in cleaned around the glass and left the cockroach in the same spot!..There was quite a few children here but there is nothing for them to do! one benifit is i didnt realise how close the water park is its literly a 2 minute walk away defo recomended its the best water park ive ever been to really clean and very friendly!!.. The night life is good but you do get mitherd loads to come in the clubs..we just wanted some where nice to eat and have a relaxing drink!!.. There is a lovley pub right next to the beach it has white tents very cosy an relaxing!..i wouldnt stay here again though id defo choose another hotel!!

Travelled with a group of eight golfers for a week’s golf in Tenerife, apartments were pre-booked as part of our total trip package so the accommodation selection was already done.

Accommodation is clean, all rooms were cleaned every other day, fresh towels but no soap or any other shower gels or shampoo etc so make sure you take your own when you travel. Rooms were boiling hot all day and night as the building has no air condition, this is basic accommodation so I suppose we got exactly what we paid for.

WiFi is available but impossible to connect to, managed once but gave up as its not worth the hassle, other facilities include a bar/restaurant, we tried this once but the service was like faulty towers so we gave it up and move on.

The pool was OK, sun beds are easily available but most of them are in some need of repair.

The central bars etc are in easy walking distance (10 mins) downhill walk but taxi’s home are a must €5 minimum fare as its a long hike up the hill after an evening of high jinks in the town!
